Workshop: Data visualisation with Python and the Jupyter Notebook
Once upon a time, making plots in Python meant Matplotlib. But things have changed!
There are now a huge number of libraries for visualisation in Python, with all kinds of features – beautiful styling, data-friendly colour schemes, interactivity, specialised plots, online hosting, and more. Is it worth the effort of switching from your current tools? If you are just getting started, where should you start? In this talk we’ll go through some popular options and show what they can do.
I’ll also show how these libraries integrate with the ever-popular Jupyter Notebook, and how you can create interactive visualisations to explore your data.
